Uploaded by Pestilence86 on 11.01.2009

learn how to fly a helicopter in Grand Theft Auto Four
using a mouse with two additional thumb buttons
and a regular keyboard
for the helicopter controls, we will set the keys...
press and hold the right mouse button
and move the mouse to look around
if you don't hold the right mouse button
your camera can not be moved anymore
instead your mousemovements would move the helicopter
you can press the spacebar to get a temporary first person view
the first person view gives you a crosshair which makes it easier to aim at your targets (mispronounced)
press W to accelerate
and S to decelerate the rotor speed off your helicopter
press D to pitch to the right
and press A to pitch to the left
press CTRL to rotate left
and ALT to rotate right
while flying you will use your little finger to press CTRL
and your thumb to press ALT
note that im holding the right mouse button permanently
to being able to look around all the time
press the two thumb buttons on your mouse to picth backwards and forwards
while in mid air
press and hold the spacebar and use the mouse to aim with your helicopter
because of the weight of the helicopter feels a bit heavy
now lets take the helicopter for a ride
using all the previous shown controls, you can, with a bit practice, manoeuver the helicopter
through almost all terrain
like bridges
and more bridges
even the same bridge twice
lets go for an assault
release the right mouse button
now press and hold SPACE
aim and shoot at your targets (mispronounced)
vehicles take fire quickly just after some single shots
the first person view is an easy way to lock and eliminate your targets
watch out
you can lose control of your helicopter in the first person view
change quickly back to the first person view
and correct your helicopter position
then go back in first person
and finish your enemy off
all right! Lets land this bird
now the free mouse view comes in very handy
you can exactly see how much distance there is between the landing spot
and the helicopter
also you can see how much you must adjust your helicopter position
to land it correctly on the landing spot
